Not so much as you think. What will fit and work for a Remington 700 reciever works for alot of the aftermarket recievers. They just pattern the external dimensions of their recievers to work for what is made for the Remington 700 reciever. For this disiplin of shooting my observation is that barrels are expendable. 243 guys, for example, use up 2 or so barrels a year if they are going to stay competitive. Also, in my observations, although a barrel burner, 243 (6mm) does rock.
